Should I wait or pull the trigger - 60k 5* shards?

Hi guys, looking for some advice - I have 10 5* champs (dup: Rhino, IF undup: Drax, Xavier Clops YJ, VP, OG Spidey, CM, HB and Juggs).

None at 4/55 as those are not worth ranking up.

My aim is to tackle at least easy path of LOL so I'm thinking do I try for SL in basic now, wait for higher chance of pulling decent basic in Dec/Jan or go for a featured that can take on LOL. I have 60k shards now and a cosmic awakening gem.

Any thoughts/ideas would be really helpful?

    If you're tempted and because you already have a decent amount of shards saved, I say open a few if you're really tempted, but for the most part your'e gonna wanna wait for a while.

    Thx @Samuel030s I'm tempted daily to pull the trigger!!

    Yeah I would wait til November where you'd have a chance to pull GP and Hyperion which would solve your awakening gem problem, if you get that lucky.

    Or Dec which has AA, and Iceman - think I'll hold on but am fully prepared to pull LC, SG, HB, etc. I'm hoping to have at least 10 crystals to pull by then - really don't think I'll hold out that long though

    I'm in the same boat, I have a mutant awakening gem so I have to wait til Dec to pull. If I don't pull Iceman or AA I'm going to be pissed lol

    If you are looking to do a LOL run wait till november and go for stark enhanced spiderman. You have by far the best odds of getting a champion that can LOL going for him with 60k shards. He is the 2nd best option for LOL right behind starlord and for the first path might even be a little better since you don't have to worry as much about falcon, warmachine and meastro's sp 1

    No he returns as a featured champ in november and you have a 20%-25% chance to pull him way better odds than pulling starlord out of the basic

    Far better to wait. I'm also saving until December, nothing worthy this upcoming months to waste crystals.

    Oh didn't know that, cheers
  • I did my first run with duped Drax. Drax is a very good 5* r4 option. He's also good for alliance war vs evaders. His double swipe catches them many times. I would use cosmic awakening on Drax and run easy path. I used Drax, 4* SL, yj, yj, antman. Under 1 odin gets the job done. The LOL rewards are great and those 20k shards along with other rewards changes your account tremendously. Good luck

    @Angry_Asian17 would it be a waste of the awakening gem? I have enough units saved (approx 5k and heals and revives in stash) and enough cats to take him to r4. I may wait until nov, try featured spark and if no luck I'll awaken drax
  • @JJ4302 Drax and Hyperion are best 5* cosmic to awaken. I would definitely do it.
  • thx

    I'll say the same thing I said to a friend who was obsessing about their diet. "If you want to eat a burger, eat a burger."

    Tech Spidey would be my top choice for November.
  • I think most ppl will be waiting for November or going for KP or Medusa
  • JJ4302JJ4302 Posts: 47
    Anyone changed their minds about going for Stark Spidey with Blade and Morning Star being released? I'm sitting on 95k shards and think I'll try for Spark 1st and then if I'm crazy lucky with shards left over I'll go for blade for synergy. Be interested to hear what others are doing...

    I think I'm prepared for that outcome (as much as anyone can be gambling). At the least I hope for one decent champ, I have 10 already and no-one I'd want to r4 apart from Drax or CM. Thanks for the advice
